Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

The Hall Masterpiece is a tough act to follow, but at about 1/3 of the price, this cab from this little known producer holds up just fine.

Blackberry, cassis, incense, licorice, anise, and subtle forest floor on the nose. Full body and quite masculine, but there is still a generous feel on the mid palate. Supple tannins.

Helena Dakota Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Nose: raspberry, blackberry, cassis (?), dust. Subtle herbs, the kind you’d find in some kind of health food herbal tea for what ails you. A little leather.

Taste: absolutely delicious. Weighty, tastes as it smells, but bigger and juicier more red fruit than the nose - yet very balanced, with lots of mineral flavors besides. Not as complex as the very best I’ve had, but extremely tasty. A little more toasty coffee on the palate as you sip it. I may like this better than the Shafer I had recently. 94.

Intense ruby color. Stewed fruit, violets, hints of leather, licorice, sweet tobacco, creme brulee on the nose. Real depth and complexity on the palate - chewing gum, licorice, plums, black cherries. Lifted acidity still provides a youthful backbone along with prominent tannin. Killer wine though lacks a tad bit of freshness. — 4 days ago

Les Pavots Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

Delectable Wine
9.6

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Les Pavots is a dense, powerful wine that is going to need at least a few years to shed some baby fat. A rush of blue/purplish fruit, lavender, sage, tobacco, grilled herbs and incense washes across the palate. There's terrific depth, but the 2019 is so young. The 2019 is one of the more refined young Les Pavots I can remember tasting. It will be exquisite in another few years' time. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, June 2022)

L'Apres-Midi Knights Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Followed over two days. I’m not much of a SauvBlanc enthusiast anymore, but I still appreciate well-made offerings, and this certainly checks off the boxes.

For me, this lands in-between Bordeaux Blanc style and your typical, run-of-the-mill Cali SB. 90/10 SB/Semillon, this is a balanced and chiseled new-world SauvBlanc that plays to its strengths. It doesn’t try to be an aromatic and texturally seductive Bordeaux Blanc style, nor is it a watered-down afterthought. Gooseberry, lemon meringue, limestone and distinct grapefruit aromatics. Fleshed out a tiny bit on day two, but I don’t see the palate evolving much with more age aside from less acidity. Not quite tropical on the palate, yet it does have orchard fruits and a nervy mineral-laced acid-grip at the finish. Enjoy now and over the next few years.
